Is this army really built for officers? If one wants to join the cavalry does daddy have to be rich? Is the Guards officers mess half full of Eaton boys with country estates or a house in Kensington? How is life in RGR? We've all heard the old stories about the character of different regiments and corps and various internal 'regulations' they may have and also the newer speel about how it's all equal pickings out of Sandhurst, so what really is the score today? Do officers find the job on ops is becoming more admin and less active leadership orientated? Anyone had any experience comparing the British to American Officer life, or any other nation at that? Saying all this as a potential Officer Cadet with little practical knowledge outside of ranker life in the infantry and more familiar with the US officer system, and also hopefully as a source of humour, but try to keep it relevant!
